Guess what? NFL owners spend their piles of scratch on more than just football players.
Julien's Auctions told The AP that Irsay purchased the 1963 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl three-piece drum set at a sale on Friday in Beverly Hills, California. Starr used the kit during recordings of "Can't Buy Me Love," "She Loves You," "All My Loving" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand."
More than just a music lover, Irsay previously made waves in the literary community by paying $2.43 million in 2001 for Jack Kerouac's original "On the Road" manuscript, an epic banged out feverishly by the writer on one long and winding -- and now yellowing -- scroll.
